Q: Why are your products bottled in Glass?
All of our skincare is only available in glass bottles as the founder, Jane May Graves doesn't want our high quality, pure ingredients absorbing any kind of plastic contaminates, such as hormone disruptors, Chemicals having an estrogenic activity (EA).
We understand glass bottles can be inconvenient, but overall they are safer for our health and environment.
Here is an excellent NIH research article:
"Results: Almost all commercially available plastic products we sampled—independent of the type of resin, product, or retail source—leached chemicals having reliably detectable EA, including those advertised as BPA free. In some cases, BPA-free products released chemicals having more EA than did BPA-containing products."
Q: Can I use Luxe Lotion over my entire body?
A: Yes. The formula was created as a high-quality face lotion; however, we believe all your skin (your largest organ) deserves only the finest and most nourishing ingredients. Try Luxe Lotion on your elbows, knees, legs, and feet. You will see the difference immediately.
Q: Why do your labels on the 8.5 oz Luxe lotion read, "For Face, Neck, and Hands"?

Q: Is there any difference between the 8.5oz luxe lotions and the 2oz size luxe lotions?
A: There is no difference except bottle size. The 2oz is our travel size and the only size that has the Lavender scent. Both the 8.5 oz and 2 oz contain the same ingredients. Both sizes are face-quality moisturizer and can be used on other parts of the body. The formula was created as a high-quality face lotion; however, we believe all your skin (your largest organ) deserves only the finest and most rejuvenating and nourishing ingredients.
